Just a reminder, from two weeks ago:

And yet the numbers just don't match the hysteria (again)

Here is the real data as per johns Hopkins:

WORLDWIDE:
375,450 cases
(7.5 BILLION people in the world...do the math)

16,371 TOTAL deaths blamed on this disease. (so far, "normal" seasonal flu has killed over 20,000 people this year)

For this we shut down our way of life and killed our economy?

So, where are we...and this is a few hours early than two weeks earlier...73,917 deaths (up 452%) and 1,324,907 cases (up 353%). For those not mathematically inclined, this indicates an increase in the mortality rate, but is likely an artifact of the data. Current U.S. deaths are at 10,377, running a tick below 3%, again handicapped by poor data on actual cases. The U.S. lags only Italy and Spain in deaths, but has about a third more cases than both of them, just less advanced on the time line.

As an additional note, there are a shitload of cases that aren’t being counted, deaths too. Look a Ecuador, who officially have 3,747 cases confirmed, but have started to distribute 2,000 cardboard coffins because bodies are piling up...despite an official toll of 191.

Thanks, CP88.

There you go again, CP88, throwing around those intellectual-elitist concepts like “epidemiology” and “math” and “objective reality” .... To paraphrase our illustrious President, why do you have to be so nasty by presenting the simple facts of the situation plainly and clearly like that?

I expect the ranks to thin dramatically over the next few weeks. There is no incentive to stay.
